London to receive six 'maths hubs'

Six 'maths hubs' are to be created in London as part of a government scheme to improve maths skills among young people and adults.

The government said some east Asian countries are two or three years ahead of 15-year-olds in the UK, and will bring Chinese teachers over to Britain as part of the scheme to give maths master classes.

Victoria Hollins talked to education minister Elizabeth Truss and Jenny Noy, assistant headteacher at Fox Primary School, in Notting Hill.
